Jessica Barnett | 16 comments The review that wasn't.

From another site, not Goodreads:

Current status: Your book has been rejected without being fully read. ... This is what the reviewer had to say:

"It is not that I hate the book. I don't, but that was the only option I was given. It is just that I am not comfortable reading about young girls kissing other young girls. While I think it is written well, I do not believe I am the best person to be reviewing it."

Rainbowheart | 716 comments Pretty typical, most LGBT books get at least a couple homophobic reviews. At least she didn't give it a low rating? Was it just listed as a DNF?

Jessica Barnett | 16 comments Yes, DNF or the equivalent for this site, which is no review at all. No harm done, except the usual prickling of my, at times, thin skin. Onward.
